When he did, Chub iand Shenn got out of their cars -and walked to the same place, jbut standing a little apart Link I stayed where he was. Ricky had spoken bravely to ISharon, but his legs were trem- ibling as he stood beside Link's ;car. He'd started to make bis iplay, and the guys were waiting tto see how be finished it. Link's (insulting, arrogant smirk was i clearly visible as he lounged behind the steering wheel. Ricky looked tall and slight in his dark slacks and crisp white shirt. "What's the idea?" Ricky demanded, his voice uncontrollably shrilL "Nerfing me." "Don't you like itr "No, I dont I'm telling you to I quit." "You and who else?" "I don't need anybody etee." "Big talk from a small boy." "Big enough to back it up." "Yeah?" • Chub and Sherm itood by jquietly, neutral, and curious. Link studied Ricky's angry iface, and it helped him work up •the anger he needed for the oc- icasion. "Come on, if you're not yel- ." "Don't you call me yeHowP I Link scrambled out of the con- Ivertible, a look of hatred on his Iface There were no preliminaries, mo squaring-off, no feeling-put with jabs and footwork. As Link came out of his car Ricky hurled himself at his enemy, striking blindly and wildly, with only one thought in mind—to punish Linx. Ricky struck with a punch, grappled, and clawed at Link, trying to pull him down. Link v« carried back against hi« car, fruntinf wit* pun •* ***? ! fingers aaked across his face. He 'used the white shirt as a target and hit out as hard as he could. He felt Ricky's body sag as bis hard fists connected, and then felt numbing jolts as Ricky struck back. Ricky staggered as Link's fists came out of the darkness and smashed against his nose and mouth. He fell forward, trying to hit, and felt his knuckles punish Link's ear. • * * TTE was crying now. Sobbing •"• and making threats as he ran into the barrage of fists and that eluded and punished him. A blow on the jaw stopped Ricky in his tracks. He tried to swing, but took a hard blow to the body. He stumbled to bis knees, reaching out to grab Link's legs. Link went down, and Ricky went after him, trying to scream his hatred through the blood and tears that choked him. At close quarters Link had the weight advantage. He used fists, feet and elbows to batter down Ricky's attack and strike short, vicious blows that cut when they landed and brought new blood streaming down Ricky's face. It was then that Shenn and Chub moved forward and. pulled him off roughly. -Lemme go," Link shouted hoarsely. "Lemme finish him!" "He's got enough," Shenn said calmly. "You get back or Til bash your head in." He picked Link up in his arms and carried him to the convertible, pushing him inside. Then he went back to Chub, who was bending over Ricky. Ricky lay on his back, his shirt ripped to ribbons, his face smeared with dirt and blood. His gasping breath bubbled through his bloody nose and - _ , ... _. . "You all right, Rick?" Chub 'Help hM» up," Sb*rm said, dropping to his knees, file and Chub helped Ricky to the coupe. Sharon watched in horror a* they eased Ricky under the wheel She had her hands clenched around a handkerchief that she held to her mouth. It was soaked with tears. AH through the fight she bad crouched in the car crying, trying to shut out the animal noises. Wanting to run out and stop them, tear them apart, and knowing that she couldn't Ricky sat up straight for a moment, then leaned forward, lying against the steering wheel, his breathing noisy and sobbing. "You're a mess. Rick," Chub said awkwardly, his round face looking as remorseful as though he were responsible for Ricky's condition. "You better clean up before you get home." 'You . . . you're fine friends, you are!" Sharon shouted tearfully. "Why didn't you stop them?" "Ricky started it," Chub said. "He'chose Link." TMCKY was able-to sit up now. AX "I'm all ri . . ." His mouth and lips were cut and hurt "Guess we'd better shove," Chub mumbled. "You . . . yoo put up a good scrap, Rick." Shenn and Chub backed away. A moment later Link's car pulled out on the road with Chub and Sherm following. They disappeared around a turn. Ricky tried to start the car, but his hands were trembling so badly he couldn't manage th« key. Sharon dried her eyes with the damp handkerchief. "Let me, Ricky." Sharon got out and walked around the car. She got into the driver's seat a* Ricky dragged himself to the right side, trying to He down on the seat She even had to drive him home. He sat up a little, trying to hold back his groans. "I . . . guess I won a ... moral victory . . . W« ... I didn't break any club . . laws. . . ." He tried to laugh, and the movement started the blood flowing inside his mouth.
